I rely on *Booklist*, to which we've subscribed for years.  Occasionally I
get an idea from Maine Public; Jennifer Rooks' recent interview, plus reviews, added *Moral Combat *to my order list.  When I buy a
new author, I try to remember to get patron reactions so I'll know whether
to look for his/her next book.  When a patron suggests a book or author I
don't know, I check on (always assuming some of the five-star
reviews are written by the author's spouse, partner or publisher & some of
the one-stars by a disgruntled ex-spouse or the publisher who regrets
turning down the book).
